Scope and content

Most of the files in this series relate to the ‘College Choice’ project, the first study in Canada of “the effects of surveys on students as they make choices among colleges.” It was based on “a series of surveys carried out at the University of Toronto from the late 1970s and on a series or surveys and interviews of students and guidance counselors in four or five Toronto high schools with different student populations.” The files contain correspondence; compact discs of data sets, reports, and associated material; “catchment samples” and participant dossiers; data analysis and drafts of reports. Files on several other research projects follow. Research projects for which Professor Lang received external funding and which are not included in this series are listed in his curriculum vitae in B2011-0003/001 (01).
